Voice of the Day: Patience

Patience has always been a difficult virtue for me. I’ve found this quote from Henri Nouwen helpful and wanted to share it with you:

“Patience is not waiting passively until someone else does something. Patience asks us to live the moment to the fullest, to be completely present to the moment, to taste the here and now, to be where we are. When we are impatient, we try to get away from where we are. We behave as if the real thing will happen tomorrow, later, and somewhere else. Let’s be patient and trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.” — Henri J.M. Nouwen
